History of the Red Deer Species
These huge deer originated in Europe, Asia Minor, and Iran. This impressive species has been introduced in New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, and the US for sport hunting and their flavorful meat.
Red Deer are similar to elk but, a bit smaller. In fact, they are the largest deer next to elk and moose.
In 1969, in Great Britain, where red deer are native and abundant, new legislation permitted capture and commercial farming in captivity. The Red Deer flourish on Texas exotic ranches and because of this Texas has the highest population of the biggest Red Deer in the world. Now you know Texas Hunt Lodge is the place to get this trophy Red Deer, as we have access to over 100,000 acres of Texas ranches.
Appeal of the Red Stag
A red stag bull ranges in weight from 350 to 750 pounds though in optimal conditions they can reach 1,000 pounds. Its impressive antler rack matches its size. Horns are branch and big older stag will have a large “crowns” at the end of his horns. A Red Stag’s horns can grow as fast as an inch per day. Usually stags have five or six points per, but a rack can have in excess of 20 points per side. The bigger the crown, the greater the trophy.
Its brown coat reddens in the summer months. Their rump patches can be light brown to rust colored. The stags develop a neck ruff during autumn keeping it through the winter.
Year-round hunting is available.
